In my last post, i talked about how no one can ‘heal’ you.

If someone talks about using his/ her inner energy, to set your inner energy right, through one cult practice or another, do cross the road. You are far safer with a professional doctor.

No one can see your chakras. Anyone who claims to is a liar. Almost, anyone.  There are few gifted individuals born with such a gift. They are very few and very far in between; rest are frauds.

In this video, Dean Ornish in his TED talk, confirms that you can heal yourself. He doesn’t refer you to any shaman. He tells you to follow some simple principles of well-being. They are:

  • Eat less carbohydrates, fat, white stuff and don’t drink colas.
  • Drink water  more water
  • Don’t smoke or use drugs
  • Exercise
  • Meditate, relax, thing positive thoughts, do thinks you like
  • When you eat, do nothing but eat; don’t read, talk, watch TV; respect your food.

You may say, what rubbish, so what’s new?

So, what of these do you follow today? If you do, aren’t you well? If you don’t, aren’t you ill?

There’s more. You can do more to heal yourself.

The chakras, the inner energy centers of or mind body system, do exist. Both Indian and Chinese scriptures and traditional medical systems refer to principles of inner energy centers, meridians and points for healing. Acupuncture, Acupressure, Kalaripayattu, Ayurveda and such other ancient traditional medical systems use the inner energy concept effectively to heal. These healing processes are not some mumbo-jumbo laying of hands. They are practical cures.

However, to make these cures effective, you need to support them with holistic techniques like yoga, meditation and Tai-chi. Yoga, meditation and Tai-chi cannot be practiced by someone else for you. You have to do it yourself.

You have to rise your inner energy yourself. You have to balance your inner energy yourself. You then heal yourself.

The way is through meditation. We shall cover more in future posts.
